Default KFA2 Introduces Wireless GeForce GTX 460 Graphics Card

Lightbulb Review in the future?


Could this transmission method make use of all the available horsepower is my wonder. I would love to see a benchmark of this product.

You could always spray paint or hand paint them different colours if they option is not available from the manufacturer.

This seems like an interesting idea, i'm hoping they are using a licensed channel in the 5GHz band otherwise you may finding you have other wireless devices interfering with it (Cordless phones, microwaves, wireless routers all run at the two unlicensed bands which is why you can run into interference if you are on certain cordless phones when you are near an active/running microwave)

The card appears to have a DVI, an HDMI and a Display Port as well. I would think you could SLI with another non-wireless card and output over the wireless one only. Only thing is it can only handle a single 1080p display over the wireless.
